It’s not been a good day for the Bengals’ next opponent, the Miami Dolphins. After taking an early 17-3 lead against the New England Patriots today, it seems like it’s been all bad news for the Dolphins since then.
They lost their top wide receiver to a potential season-ending injury, and they went on to be outscored 24-0 in the secon-half vs the Pats as they lost by a final score of 27-17, extending their losing-streak to four games now.
Now, according to SI.com, Dolphins Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena after Sunday’s game.
A source with knowledge of the matter told SI.com that the subpoena is related to the investigation into Aaron Hernandez, Pouncey’s close friend and former teammate at the University of Florida. The source indicated that police are focusing in on Hernandez’s potential involvement in interstate gun trafficking, which is being investigated by several agencies in multiple states — at least Massachusetts, New York and Florida.
The extent of Pouncey’s potential involvement is undetermined, but police are focusing on multiple transactions that involve him and Hernandez. “Organizationally, we do not have a comment,” said Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene. “And Mike Pouncey does not have a comment.”
